The empirical eigenvalue distribution of the elliptic random matrix ensemble tends to the uniform measure on an ellipse in the complex plane as its dimension tends to infinity. We show this convergence on all mesoscopic scales slightly above the typical eigenvalue spacing in the bulk spectrum with an optimal convergence rate. As a corollary we obtain complete delocalisation for the corresponding eigenvectors in any basis.
